STEWART LEES | Reflection, Lemons and Parsley

STEWART LEES | Reflection, Lemons and Parsley


Oil on Gesso Panel

50 x 70 cms / 19½" x 27½"


This beautiful original oil painting by Stewart Lees depicts a still life of a French kitchen. Seeking to ‘turn the familiar into something extraordinary’, Stewart views the challenges of the genre of still life painting as being akin to those of portrait painting, combining a concern for surface detail with deeper understanding of the subject.

  • Stewart originally pursued a successful career as a graphic designer and illustrator, establishing his own agency in 1985. He still managed to keep up with his painting on weekends and when he moved to rural France he began to paint again every day, teaching numerous classes as well as staging successful exhibitions.


    In addition to his painting Stewart has also written and illustrated two award-winning childrens books, published both in the UK and the US. Bringing a wealth of experience as an illustrator and painter of landscapes and portraits, Stewart has increasingly come to focus on still life.


    He is greatly influenced by Dutch 17th-century Still Life artists, and above all by Andrew Wyeth, whose meticulous draughtsmanship and evocation of mood and atmosphere all resonate with Stewart's own work.
